* VillainousValour: Gaston has a good reason to boast about his strength. He fought toe-to-toe and did it pretty well against Beast, even when Beast got over his despair and stopped letting himself get beaten. He also ripped off a marble/stone ornament from the castle with little to no effort, and was able to carry approximately 400+ lbs (The Triplets sitting on a bench) with one hand and with very little effort, which places his strength at [[SuperStrength superhuman levels]].

** Belle's simple country dress before she gets some finer clothes at Beast's castle was designed to be a lot like [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Dorothy Gale's]] to indicate her having a similarly innocent and yet strong-and-adventurous personality.



* SoftWater: Realistically averted, when one logically combines the DisneyVillainDeath and FreezeFrameBonus tropes from above: though his tumble was evidently into the castle's moat (though we never hear the splash for some reason), the villain must not have survived.



* TrueBlueFemininity: Belle's main dress is white and blue, which the filmmakers said is symbolic to her personality and situation.

Added DiffLines:

** Slightly Averted: The movie begins in mid to late autumn (At the start of the movie there is a farmer hauling in pumpkins and during 'Belle Reprise' the trees are in shades of red, brown and orange as well as green.) Continues on through winter and end the curse is broken in early spring, although it is hard to realise the timeline, the movie takes place over the course of five months.
** As for the concern of the Beast's age refer to WouldHurtAChild

* WouldHurtAChild: Apparently, the Enchantress has no problem with cursing an 11-year-old boy to a double dose of BodyHorror and AndIMustScream.WordOfGod states that though the Beast's official age is not mentioned in the movie, it is strongly indicated by the narrator's statement that the rose "would bloom until his 21st year." As the rose has already begun to wilt by the time Belle arrives at the castle, it is very likely that the Beast is 20 years (i.e. on their 21st year) of age by this point. This has been confirmed by the Beast's artist Glen Keane, and also in the filmmakers commentary for the extended edition, where it is specifically stated that the Beast's/Prince's 21st birthday would occur at some point ''after the enchanted rose has lost all of it's petals and the curse had either been broken, or else become permanent.''

** Possibly averted. The picture in the West Wing clearly shows the prince as an adult -- but the timeline is very suspect (see WritersCannotDoMath below). She doesn't have any issue turning the children of the castle into teacups, however.

* HaHaHaNo: Played straight and then subverted with Gaston when he and [=Lefou=] are laughing about Belle's "crazy" father. When Belle tells them not to talk that way about her father, Gaston rounds on [=LeFou=] and [[DopeSlap conks him on the head]] and repeats Belle's admonition to him. Then something blows up in the lab and they both start laughing again, and then Gaston {{Dope Slap}}s [=LeFou=] ''again''... but then goes on laughing.

* FollowTheLeader: Between this and ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', almost all Western animated features, Disney or not, that followed until ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' came along four years later were fairy tale musicals (the big exception being ''Disney/TheLionKing'', [[Manga/KimbaTheWhiteLion which]] [[Theatre/{{Hamlet}} wasn't]] FairyTale-based).

* WritersCannotDoMath: The film has a dodgy timeline. Deleting "Human Again"(and deleting time related lyrics when it was later re-inserted) was an attempt to avoid this trope, but didn't answer all the questions.
